the beach literally drops down just before the break and that's what is making those waves maybe look a little smaller on tv then they really are, but i'll tell you, they have been getting higher in the past hour and a half to two hours we have been down here. we're watching the tide it pull out and the next high tide is going to occur tomorrow morning between 3:00 and 4:00, that is the point that we're really concerned with because we've got to deal with the winds pushing out. the waves pushing on, and in fact just over my shoulder here you see this, this is the wet mark, this is where the last high tide setup and this is more than 12 hours before the worst of the storm. this wet mark goes up to the fence off on the edge to see how close it's already gotten into the parking lot. i have been talking to a couple have local news cruz here, they talked about some flooding happening up in the 70s, we have sponge íen to some people staying in the 10 0's, they say they have lost their beach already, they have already been flooded out. so there are some places that haven't been able to main

at the crystal coast this evening. this is on the atlantic beach. check out the surf here. we're expecting the storm surge to swallow up a good portion of the beach. that pier is getting a little wobbly tonight too. >> here is the latest hurricane track. national hurricane center moving noblgts. noblgts upd at 18. it's moving pretty quickly now. and this track if you were with us earlier today and this evening is right along this line, the 70 degree longitude line. it's now east of that, which is the second bit of good news. the hurricane has weakened. it's now forecast to pass only about 100 miles or so to the east of cape hatteras which means the weather won't get as bad as we thought at 5:00 or 6:00. >> now to atlantic beach where hurricane earl is storing up major swells. probably where we've seen most of the rain this evening. the most experienced hurricane reporter in our state greg barnes is live from atlantic beach. he's riding out the storm there, trying to stay dry. doesn't look like it's working. >> reporter: that's not going to happen. i've seen them big,
